# R Programming: Find row and column index of maximum and minimum value in a given matrix

## R Programming: Matrix Exercise-11 with Solution

Write a R program to find row and column index of maximum and minimum value in a given matrix.

**Sample Solution:**

**R Programming Code:**

```
m = matrix(c(1:16), nrow = 4, byrow = TRUE)
print("Original Matrix:")
print(m)
result = which(m == max(m), arr.ind=TRUE)
print("Row and column of maximum value of the said matrix:")
print(result)
result = which(m == min(m), arr.ind=TRUE)
print("Row and column of minimum value of the said matrix:")
print(result)
```

Sample Output:

[1] "Original Matrix:" [,1] [,2] [,3] [,4] [1,] 1 2 3 4 [2,] 5 6 7 8 [3,] 9 10 11 12 [4,] 13 14 15 16 [1] "Row and column of maximum value of the said matrix:" row col [1,] 4 4 [1] "Row and column of minimum value of the said matrix:" row col [1,] 1 1
